Won't turn on

When I turn my camera on, it just beeps 2 times. The lens screen will not close completely either. I'm pretty sure it wasn't bumped or dropped but I can't figure out how to fix it!!

I have a samsung S500 and when I turn it on the lens doesn't open or extend and it will beep 3 times and shut off. I have tried new batteries and nothing works. I took it to a camera shop and they

Well, have you ever considered that the lenses MIGHT be defected? If it's true, you can send it back to the manufacturer, as long as it wasn't YOU who made it defected.
Another tip, is maybe the lens isn't made for that type of camera.
Lastly, the lens can just be broken, so you should carefully examine it, and see INSIDE of it, to make sure all of the parts are their. Hope this helps (:

Lines on screen and photos, too bright photos outside

Lines across your pictures or pictures too bright are due to the shutter not closing correctly or at all.
to check this- turn camera on, turn off flash, turn camera around and look into the lens. Adjust the zoom so that the shutter and internal lens comes up to the end of the lens and whatch as you take a picture. You should see the shutter close completely over the lens. If it doesn't move or does not close over completely then there is your problem.
If camera was dropped it could have jammed the shutter open or obstructed it in some way from closing completely.
camera will require repair/ service.
You may have some luck if you power up and down your camera numerous times before taking a picture. The action of the lens opening and closing may free the shutter.

Everytime i turn my camera on the lens open and shut.

you have dameged the mechanism and the lens may be like a cross threded screw that is why it closes down. it is expensive to repair via Canon.
so try this.. close the lens by turning camera off take the camera and slap it into the palm of your hand 2/3 times then turn back on. this should put it back in its aligned track. if it doesnt work the foirst time try to about 20 tijmes if it still dosnt work its a throw away or a big outlay

I turn camera on. Lens comes out. beep 3 times. turns off.

Everytime I try to turn it on, the lens comes out for about a second, the camera beeps 3 times, the lens retracts and the camera shuts off. The battery is completely charged and the camera is only 4 months old. HELPP :(

S800 lens won't close, can't take photos

The lens was bent to one side, so bump with my palm to straighten it back. I was able to start using my Samsung again.

Cannot take pictures


Has the camera been bumped recently?

This could cause one or more lens elements to shift slightly out of position and thus prevent the lens from extending.

You can check inside the lens, and try to shift the lens elements back into position by bumping the camera the other way. I have read some people were actually successful at this.

(Don't bump it too hard).

If the lens still doesn't extend, then there are still some options:

1. Take or send the camera to a service center to get fixed. This will likely be over $100.

2. Get a new camera, there are better ones out there and for close the same price as having this one fixed.

Lens problems

Try opening your camera, check the lens gear if its teeth are complete. If so, check if something stucks on it. Its much better to bring your camera to an authorized service center to re timing your lens track... ^_^

Lens stuck

If the lens is not coming out, its stuck, or it wont completely open or close, that is the lens assembly, that needs to be repaired. You need to take it to somebody, that can either repair it or replace it for you. There is nothing that can be done, other than that......

The lens doesnt close and when i turn the camera on it bips three times and the screan shuts off. the lens wont close.

The batteries need to be changed. The digital batteries sold at the stores die out too fast. I had this same problem. In result, I purchased rechargeable battieries.
